I am making an effort to write this year in review after getting my inspiration from my awesome brother-in-law, Ahmad Awais. As he writes:

2018 was an incredible year for me, both personally and professionally. I am writing this year in review to fight with my imposter syndrome, to hold myself accountable, to keep a log of what I do, and to see how I improve myself as an engineer & designer over the years.

Interior designing is not all about buying new stuff for room decor; it also comprises of utilizing the already existing stuff uniquely.

My friends usually take my advice on how to place their furniture in the right place in their rooms. They often send me photographs of their rooms, and after a few changes in the furniture layout, I send them back. Transforming the furniture layout helps remodel their space.

Today when I woke up in the morning, I didn’t feel quite energetic. When I looked around, I felt everything was very ordinary. So, I questioned my mind how I could make the ordinary surrounding extraordinary?

When it comes to interior designing, we all love mood boards. Before consulting a specialist interior decorator, we do a little bit of homework ourselves by fabricating a mood board.

Here I am going to enlighten your mind about various designing ideas which will help you design your house without hiring an interior designer. So, without further ado, let’s get started.


Bedrooms are the best place in the whole wide world. Stepping into your bedroom feels like you are entering into your own small world. One spends the most time in one’s bedroom.
